Gym Class Heroes are back with album number three called “The Quilt” and damn, this stuff is just too catchy! A band that manages to keep me listening to hiphop for fourteen songs has to be doing something right!

The secret behind GCH is the fact that they like to diversify so whether you’re talking about the guitars in “Live A Little” with Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, the Jurassic 5 vibe in “Like Father, Like Son (Papa’s Song)” or the ridiculously slick single “Peace Sign/Index Down” (with Busta Rhymes), it always works thanks to the cutesy melodies and Travis’ solid raps. I personally could’ve done without the cheesy ballad that is “Live Forever (Fly With Me)” but still… “The Quilt” is a guilty pleasure but there’s no denying that it’s a job well done.
